Pizza in U.Square?

I would like to buy a couple of pies for my students for the final class. What's good around 5th Ave/14th st? I wouldn't want to schlep as far as Joe's on Bleecker, for example. TIA.

  1. There's a Patsy's Pizza around there, but I can't think of the exact street. Check

      Patsy's is on University near 11th street. Have not been there even though i live a few blocks away. Let us know how it is.

    2. Otto on 8th St. and 5th Ave.

        Forgot to mention the excellent Piola, on 12th street near Broadway. Not the typical corner pizza shop but a nice all around italian restaurant with many assorted thin crust pizzas.

      2. Due Amici on 14th just west of Fifth does a good job. You'll also find a Brick Oven and a Cheesteak Factory on the corner of 14th and Sixth.

          This maybe the winner - thanks. Beau711 is right - I am definitely not going to order anything very expensive, but I wouldn't want the soggy, thick, oily, bland crap that 95% of NYC pizzerias offer either.

        2. Pizza 33 jsut opened on 14th and 6th. Good pizza pies for a group.

          1. Pizza dead zone until you get to 1st avenue then you get 3 winners: Una pizza Napoletana on 12th street, Luzzo's on 1st ave between 12th and 13th and Vinny Vincenz on 1st between 13th and 14th. Avenue A between 13th and 14th you also have Muzzarella.

              Una pizza Napoletana is ridiculously expensive for an individual pie for one ($21) If the original poster has six students that would be $126 plus tax plus delivery.

              I would recommend Stromboli's on 12th Street & University Place.
